Expert Tips

  • While precut bagged broccoli florets make an easy shortcut, you can also cut your own. One large head of broccoli will provide plenty of florets for this recipe.
  • We used chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts in this recipe so that the chicken is still tender by the time the rice is cooked through.
